In response to queries that the Research Operation Office have received about the use of electronic signatures on timesheets, we would like to confirm that electronic signatures are acceptable as long as the following conditions are fulfilled -
  • timesheets have either image signatures or certified digital signatures (rather than simply a typed name)
  • timesheets are PDF’d when they are authorised (rather than being retained in, for example, an editable excel spreadsheet)
